You need to read a bit deeper into the new The Head and The Heart song. “Another Story” is gentle, mesmeric, and very easy to initially let drift through one ear and right out the other. But there’s an interesting origin story here, and it’s worth checking out.
Parts of 2012 stick with you as sure as scars. The Sandy Hook shooting, sadly, was one of them. It’s a hard thing to ask, but think back on media blitz that followed – if your experience was anything like that of “Another Story” songwriter Jon Russell, then you may remember the overwhelming accumulation of painful details as more and more of the story came to light. “Another Story” is Russell’s primal scream – his way of clearing his head. Keep that in mind while listening, it changes the song.
Heavy stuff, we’ll move on to the band. The Head and The Heart’s next release, Let’s Be Still is due out in just a few more days on October 15th. Another new song, “Shake“, was also recently streamed, coming hard on the heels of the announcement of a headlining gig at the Wiltern this December. Check out the new song below:
